Kammerkoret Camerata, under the direction of Martin Nagashima-Toft, sings Norwegian composer Trond Kverno's Corpus Christi Carol as part of their Easter concert of pieces from various musical time periods united to tell the Passion story, with narration of biblical verses introducing each piece in between. This poignant arrangement is one of my favorites from this concert, April 10, 2011, at Sankt Thomas church in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Text (English medieval):
(refrain) Lully, lulley, the faucon hath borne my make away.
He bare him up, he bare him down, he bare him into an orchard brown. (refrain)
In that orchard there was a bed, it was hanged with gold so red. (refrain)
And in that bed there lieth a knight, his woundes bleeding both day and night. (refrain)
And by that bedeside there kneeleth a may and she weepeth both night and day. (refrain)
And by that bedeside there standeth a stone: CORPUS CHRISTI written thereon. (refrain)

Soprano soloists are Lianna Quarshie, Ditte Thiesen, and Lise Bendixen. Male quartet are Torbjoern Stridbaek (solo), Stefan Mayer, Kristian Loensted, Esben Alfort.

Kammerkoret Camerata is an award-winning, auditioned, amateur choir based in Copenhagen, Denmark, and it is a great privilege for me to be a part. For more information, please visit www.camerata.dk
